Huey sat up, rubbing his eyes and his head, and trying to piece together what happened last night.
'Damn, what happened last night?' Huey thought. 'Did I party too hard or what?' Huey took a look into the mirror, rubbing his eyes which showed heavy bags, and red stained eyes. 'Have I been crying? No way possible, I just need some sleep, right?' Huey was trying hard to convince himself he was probably tired, and that he couldn't have been crying over Jazmine. She betrayed him, so why did his heart feel empty? Was he wrong for letting her go?
As soon as Huey broke free of his thoughts, the telephone rang, and he nearly sprinted to grab it. He was half out of breath once he answered.
"Hello?" Huey was hoping that it wasn't important because he was close to being late for work.
"Hi, Mr. Freeman? This is Doctor Rowe and I was calling regarding your insurance. You do have insurance with your job, correct?"
"Uh, yes. I mean is there a problem?" Huey looked confused, trying to figure out why a doctor was calling him regarding his insurance.
"No, of course not Mr. Freeman. We just needed to call because your wife was in the hospital a few days back, and we just needed to confirm some things." Dr. Rowe was trying to sound as cheery as possible. He was just ready to get off the phone and do some sleeping.
"Oh, yes, I talked to Jazmine about that. Is there anything else?" Huey looked at the clock and had 45 minutes to get dressed. He impatiently tapped his fingers on the dresser, hoping to imply to the doctor he had some place to be.
"Yes, Mr. Freeman, when you get the chance, will you tell Jazmine her tri-weekly check-up for her pregnancy is in one week? We will call back at the end of the week to give her the actual date and time."
'Damn,' Huey thought, 'so Jazmine is pregnant?' "Yes Doctor Rowe, I will definitely let her know. Thank you for calling." Huey hung up the phone without allowing Doctor Rowe to answer back.
"So I'm going to be a father? After all of this? Why God, why? You had plenty of chances to give us a baby after we were done fighting, but You choose now? This life couldn't get any better," Huey stated. He then got up, walked to the bathroom, and began getting ready for work.
Huey walked out of his hotel room feeling as bad as he did before. He just wanted to turn around and sleep. Sleep the pain away, the void in his heart, everything. He just wanted his life back.
"Huey, I'm just dropping by to let you know that you have a planned meeting with Mr. Toshinaki at 1:00 P.M. Can you make it?" Serena asked. She just wanted to get an answer and leave. She didn't want to see Huey's face for a while.
"Yeah, that sounds fine. And Serena, can we talk for a minute?" Huey needed to apologize, but he needed to get a second opinion on something as well, and he just wanted to see if he was being too harsh.
"What?" Serena made sure her voice was cold and icy. She was hoping Huey would drop it.
"I, uh, apologize for what happened the other night. I was out of line, and I shouldn't have lead you on. I really hope you don't leave and I understand if you don't want to talk to me." Huey was looking down while rubbing the back of his neck, hoping Serena would accept it and drop it.
"You know what, Huey? I have already forgiven you. I mean what you did was just beyond words. I was so angry that night, I thought about catching the first flight back to New York. But, I decided to be the mature one about the situation and just tough it out and let it go. And then I realized, I'm not the one who has a problem with a spouse. You do, and you need to fix it. Not me, not mommy, not dadddy, YOU. So quit fucking everyone around as if your life is jolly, and you have no problems. You miss her Huey, I know you do. I could tell from the moment she caught us in the hallway, but you're too damn prideful to admit you messed up. You shouldn't have done that to her, you shouldn't have left her alone the way you did. And you definately shouldn't have tried to kiss me. She is your wife, not a toy so quit throwing her around. Fix it. I may not know too much about your relationship, but I know that you only tried to get with me because you needed someone to erase her. I'm telling you this because I don't want you going around making anyone else your punching bag the way you tried to do me. So take my advice and fix it Huey, cuz I don't have time for you to be bringing your shit to work." Serena kept her stare locked on Huey, and hoped he would take her advice and get out of her face, but he didn't.
"Serena, I don't know what to do anymore, I screwed up. I left her, and she is pregnant. With my child. I cried last night, I know I did, and my heart feels empty. I don't think I have ever missed anyone or anything the way I miss Jazmine right now." Huey felt like pouring his heart out, but he forced himself to stop before he said something he would regret.
"Well, Huey, I'm sorry to hear that. But you can't keep torturing yourself this way. You need her more than you think. Just talk to her, listen to her story, see what she has to say. You owe her that much. Just fix it before it's too late." Serena tried to sound sympathetic but it came off as irritated. She was tired, and didn't want to be late.
"Thanks Serena. I owe you big time." As Huey went in to hug Serena, she pulled back and burrowed her eyebrows together.
"Uh, I don't think we should go there. A handshake will do just fine," Serena exclaimed as she put her hand out in front of her. "We don't need another episode with Jazmine poppin' out on us and thinking we were at it again."
Huey laughed, and shaked Serena's hand back. Serena half-smiled and walked off, with a tear rolling down her face.
"So tell me Jaz, what are you going to do now?" Jazmine was talking to Cindy on the phone about her problems with Huey. After Cindy made Jazmine stay in Hong Kong and get her 'man', Jazmine assumed she might as well find someone to talk to. Obviously Huey didn't want to hear from her.
"I don't know, Cind. I think it was a horrible idea coming here. Maybe I should just face reality and get a divorce, and just raise a baby on my own. I could do it, right?" Jazmine's eyes were watering up, but she couldn't let her voice crack or Cindy would catch the first flight to Hong Kong and fix everything herself.
"Hell no, Jazmine. You my girl and you know you shouldn't be raising a baby by yourself! No one deserves to if they don't have to. Should I come to that side of the world Jazmine? Cuz it seems like you and Huey can't make up your minds, so maybe I should do the thinking for you two!" Cindy's voice was icier towards the end of her statement. She knew Huey and Jazmine were just being difficult and they needed to grow up. But she couldn't tell Jazmine that, or she would get defensive. So she tried to reword it in the best way possible.
"Cindy, I can't do this. I'm pregnant, alone, afraid, and have no husband to share it with. I just want to be with my family, but I could never tell my mom I was pregnant without Huey. She would flip." Jazmine wiped the tears rolling down her face, and was hoping Cindy couldn't tell she had started crying.
"Look Jazmine. I'm going to say this, and I'm going to say it once: marriage isn't easy. Ceasar and I fight every day, but in the end we know we have to be strong, not just for ourselves, but for each other. Yeah, the past is going to come and catch up with you, but it's the past, and that's where it needs to stay. So let it go. " Cindy finished her statement hoping Jazmine would march down the hall and demand Huey back. But it didn't. It just caused Jazmine to burst into louder sobs. Cindy sighed.
"Jazmine, you need to be alone, so call me back when you have got it together. Ceasar's home and we need some alone time. I love you girl, and you know the number. Bye." Cindy hung up before Jazmine could protest. Jazmine didn't feel like talking anyway. She just wanted to curl up in her pink fluffy socks, and sleep. Forever. And when she woke up, she wanted this whole mess gone.
'Maybe if I sleep long enough, this will go away. Ugh, Huey, where are you? I miss you so much, and I'm so sorry. Please just come back to me. Please, please, don't leave me. I can't raise a baby on my own, I can't do it without you. I need you in my life, by my side. You promised. I'll do anything. Anything.' Jazmine thought to herself as her mind drifted off. As soon as she had finally got herself to sleep, there was a knock on the door. She groggily climbed out of bed, hair a mess, face red and blotchy, and just hoped it was either Cindy or housekeeping. She reached the doorknob, and cracked it open, hoping the person would get the hint and walk away. But she wasn't expecting what she heard next.
"Jazmine, can we talk?"
